Жанровые формы вставного повествования в «Альгамбре» В. Ирвинга

The article describes the main genre forms of “story within story” in “The Alhambra” by W. Irving: history, anecdote, legend. Tradition is the least rigid of the genres. Anecdote is an instructive story involving historic personages. Legend shares the form of the fairy tale and becomes the major genre of romanticism narrative.
